As disAbility Connections reflects on the current social climate, we remember that the Independent Living Movement owes much to the civil rights movement.  Persons with disabilities took inspiration from the brave individuals of the civil rights movement who fought for their rights in society and recognized in themselves the strength to work for equal treatment.    disAbility Connections affirms it will continue to serve the community as an organization striving to advance the independence, productivity and full inclusion of all who live with disabilities.  disAbility Connections will never treat someone poorly because of who they are and will continue to work for justice for all.

disAbility Connections is following the latest guidance by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services restricting gathering sizes, requiring face coverings in public spaces, and places limitations on bars and other venues. Our office will remain closed to the public and we are working on a plan to begin a phased re-opening.

YOUR OPINION COUNTS

The Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC) needs to hear directly from people who have disabilities, their family members, friends, caregivers and other stakeholders. Your participation in the process is vital and we appreciate your time and consideration in completing this survey.  

The information collected will help to assess how those programs and services are meeting the needs of people who have disabilities living in Michigan.  The following link will take you to the survey.
